UPDATE***

Our Saviors Luthern Church 

(oldest church in Miami)

Our Saviors Lutheran Church was built at the corner of south 6th street and west 5th street in 1802. At that time downtown Miami was no bigger than a small town square. The Lutherans came into the Miami area and had a huge influence on the culture and the way of life for the city. They organized the cities laws and regulations and started town hall meetings at city hall, which they also helped build at the corner of Jackson Blvd. and Florida Ave. the center intersection of the city.

I agree, also there is no airport in the ocean, plus there is a highway going through downtown to Key Biscayne. You should have used a big map, but well done.
